Two weeks ago, reports emerged that suspended Florida State freshman quarterback De'Andre Johnson was accused of punching a woman at a Tallahassee bar. Tallahassee.com has obtained video of the incident, which took place at Yiannis on West Tennessee Street, and things look very bad for Johnson. Warning: the attack, which occurs just after the two minute mark, is quite violent.
If Tallahassee.com's version does not work, here is another version of the video:
Johnson, a former four-star recruit in the 2015 class, was suspended for an unnamed “a violation of athletic department policy" on June 25. Tallahassee.com describes the incident in more detail.
The incident occurred while the woman was waiting in line for a drink at Yianni's nightclub and felt Johnson push past her aggressively, court records say.
When she addressed him at the bar, she raised her arm to defend herself, and he grabbed her arm and began pushing her. She raised her knee into his midsection to push him away and attempted to punch him, court records say, before Johnson punched her on the left side of her face.
The woman suffered bruising near her left eye, swelling of the left cheek and upper lip, and a small cut near the bridge of her nose, according to court records.
